the obama administration changed the way the war is prosecuted. ordering the pentagon who stop using the term global war on terror. instead calling it an overseas contingency operation. the president's current cia director raised eyebrows when he declared jihad is not necessary lay bad thing. >> as americans, we refuse to live in feemplet nor do we describe our enemy as jihadists or islamists because jihad is a holy struggle a legitimate tenet of islam. >> our president says we have a war on al qaeda not a war on terror. >> that's ridiculous. this is ideologically based war which ideology that unfortunately emerges from a religion. >> critics say it comes down to semantics whether the administration considers this a war, involving enemy combatants or a law enforcement challenge. bret? >> bret: jennifer griffin live at the pentagon. thank you. much more on all of this with the panel tonight, an expanded panel. president obama will attend a memorial service thursday for the victims of the west texas fertilizer plant explosion. 14 people were killed in last week's blast and dozens more
discussion that the blind sheik, whose picture is up on the screen now, might be freed by the obama administration, that president morsi in egypt that seemed to infuriate you some what and you wrote an article, "will obama free the blind sheik?" now if you think about this, in this case, if the death penalty is not sought, are you concerned that some president down the road could ignore the issue of a life sentence imposed by a federal judge and just send the terrorist off somewhere? >> on this guy, tsarnaev? >> right. >> no, i'm not concerned about that. he's very different from the sheik. concerned about that. a sheikh is a highly symbolic figure among muslims. he was and still is widely respected as a muslim scholar, and regarded as an authority. he's a big deal. this guy is a mutt. >> so you're not worried about that? >> no. >> finally the death penalty, if he is charged with those crimes that he clearly can be, he's eligible for the death penalty? >> absolutely. >> do you think that this >> do you think this just disat the present time -- justice department will seek it? >> i h

happened today could have happened 30 days from now. this is what the obama administration wants. they don't care about the intelligence. they made it very clear they want people to have lawyers, to have trials and if we lose intelligence in the process, they say that's regrettable but that's just the way it is. that is unacceptable to me. it should be unacceptable to anybody who cares about preventing future terrorist attacks. >> mitch epnor it has my back up. who cares about my back. all i'm saying it sounds like this is the criminal justice model not a terrorist bombing warfare model. that's something that if administration has been accused of. did they make a mistake here? >> well, i'm going to agree it is a criminal justice model and not a terrorist enemy combatant model. that's clearly true. >> why is it true? >> it's true because he was charged under a criminal complaint today. he was brought before a magistrate. they followed standard operating procedure, every appearance to a criminal complaint t. magistrate always, always informs the defendant that he has a right to a lawyer, tha
bad. it's a black guy for the obama administration, congress and the faa. this is going to come back and haunt washington in a major way. connell: you said it would be disastrous for the administration. why? >> well, i think ultimately the jury understands there are always ways to cut spending. it would make the obama administration appear as though it is making six. there has to be some other way to reduce expenditures that do not impact flight times and everything. do not think this looks good for congress or the obama administration. connell: most people believe that it is the big four medicare and the fence that would really hit the budget and that is where we would really have to cut back. we do that, there will be political fallout from everything. they like their social security. they like their better. >> yes. i think so. the real problem is government overspent. we also have a lack of growth. if you have strong economic growth, you would not have these problems of revenue shortfalls that come into spending. ultimately, this is pretty basic. there is a lot of pork in the budg
brings me here today is i have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as an enemy combatants. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to roll out and in the combat the status for the suspect at this time. i believe such a decision is premature. it is impossible for us to gather the evidence in just a few days to determine whether or not this individual should be held for questioning under the law of war. the decision by the administration to try this individual in federal court is a sound decision. it is the right decision. military commission trials are not available in cases like this. i wrote the 2009 military commission act. i have been the judge advocate for over 30 years, along with the help of many colleagues. we created a system for foreign terrorists. we purposely excluded american citizens. i have all the confidence in the world in article 3 courts at the federal level. they do a terrific job. i have confidence in our military commissions system. the decision by the administration not to proce
to legal counsel when you're being questioned for national security purposes. so i hope the obama administration will allow that exception and they have a very bad track record here. >> the white house telling reporters it would try tsarnaev in federal court and no other options were considered. >> this is matter decide ode by the attend of yates and the attorney general. the whole national security team supports this decision. >> to bring it down for you, the confusion comes over the venue. there is no way under the military commissions act to try an american citizen at the military courts in guantanamo bay, but if a sed threshold of evidence was met, if there was evidence that the brothers were directed by a foreign terrorist organization that would call for enemy combatant status. >> we have been talking about the trip to russian that the older suspect took. it's my understanding you learn more about the trip. >> fox news was told that russia's equivalent othe fbi isn't a letter to the bureau claiming the older brother was a believer in radical islam and traveled to join an ext

obama last thursday. she says she's feeling much better and she hopes to walk out of the hospital in the next few days. >>> but it was a sad scene as hundreds came out to honor m.i.t. police officer sean collier. the 26-year-old was shot and killed in his police cruiser last thursday night. his death sparked the manhunt for those suspects. >>> charges against tsarnaev will likely include a weapons of mass destruction charge, which carries the death penalty. with the intense emotion surrounding the case, we asked former u.s. attorney michael garcia whether tsarnaev could get a fair trial in boston. >> very difficult to move a trial. the legal standard. essentially no jury in this city will be able to look fairly on the evidence. very high standard. i believe he will face trial in boston. >> tsarnaev is being questioned without being given his miranda rights as a matter of public safety. >>> one byproduct of the events of last week is a certain sense of boston pride. it was on full display. yesterday as the bruins took part in their annual shirt off our backs ceremony. it's usually

agreement. >> reporter: gonzalez suspects what may be happening now is in the obama administration is a quote, interagency scrum where some are pushing for a quick mirandizing. others may be advocating a delay so as much information as possible can be garnered, martha. martha: no doubt there is big discussion going on either way. the older brothers trip to chechnya in 2011 is getting a lot of attention. what can we learn about that, doug? >> reporter: we learned a bait of new information about that when the fbi tried to trace the elder tsnaraev's trip to russia and chechnya, the trail went cold for the most mundane much reasons. listen up. >> he went over to russia butp a parently when he got on the aeroflot plane, they misspelled his name so it never went into the system that he actually went to russia. >> reporter: others suggested they got all the radical indock operation -- indoctrination around the block from their boston home. >> you can point to radical imams here and there they put on their facebook pages. you about the fact they lived a few blocks away from a very controve
. it is not easy being consoler in chief. president obama has had to play that role one too many times. he does it well. what disturbs me is our collective reluctance to take on the disturbed whether homegrown or not. when you kill innocent people are you a terrorist. you terrorize. you are terrifying. i think terrorist is a leap too few take, especially in the media, because too many find the word terrorist too much to take. i understand the fear that we do not want to paint whole peoples with the same brush, but i do find it a little odd we have no such trouble painting the well to do with the whole fat cat brush or those who question climate change with the whole ignorant fringe brush. that's another brush. that's another issue. here is my issue, when you call someone a terrorist, you are not saying they are al-qaeda or chechen or basque separatist or any separatist. you say thought who kill innocent civilians automatically makes them terrorists. we are good people. we are a very good people. we are trying to be nice and diplomatic, but we are dealing with savages who would sooner see us nic

than 200 injured. president obama will be going to a memorial service there on thursday, but for now everyone is looking for answers as to how happened and whether the first responders were properly trained to deal with it. with the environmental defense fund. thank you for coming and the show. one of the biggest questions that was raised after this, of course, any time their is a tragic disaster like this that is an accident, people ask, how can we stop this map and again. you look at it and say, what went wrong. one of the things early on the people were talking about, including the texas emergency management chief, the idea that maybe the first responders put water on the fire, and that is something you necessarily want to do with ammonium nitrate. you either use some sort of fall retardant or maybe you go back and call in a hazardous materials team from your region. is it possible that adding water to this to you think made the situation worse? >> it could have made the situation worse, definitely. we don't know what the first responders knew or didn't know about what was at the
krueger, adviser to president obama. if you want to debate that, just go to other countries like ours that have a higher minimum wage, somehow they have -- david: ralph, i don't want to get into weeds. >> wait, wait. australia is double. minimum wage has a lower unemployment. david: hold on, hold on. you're mixing -- australia has a very low unemployment rate because their commodities industry has been feeding china for the past ten years. that's why they have -- it's not because of high minimum wage. >> try canada, try france, try germany, try denmark. any country in the western world has a higher real minimum wage. david: at the risk of totally -- >> no. david: -- making this into an academic discussion, david newmark looked at more than a hundred academic studies, and 85% of those studies find a negative employment effect on low skilled workers. so you're wrong! >> why don't you reduce the minimum wage, david, you'll increase jobs. do you want to do that? this is a moral issue, and the moral issue is reflected by companies like costco that starts workers at $11.50 because the head

as opposed to within the criminal justice system, which seems to be what the obama administration will do. after all, he is a u.s. citizen. he carried out the crime on u.s. soil. and there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of legal basis to try him as enemy combatant, which is not to say there aren't going to be more calls particularly from the right to do just that. >> when in theory you have so much evidence on american soil, why tarnish the prosecution by going enemy combatant. if you have no backlash from anybody who says you didn't do it the right way. >> he stole a suspect. but clearly -- you've got to walk through the process, right? >> i was thinking this weekend, again, and i'm speculating, you read the articles. we know now he ran after his own brother. you know what the defense is going to be. i was brainwashed by my brother. i ran over him to get away. >> the older brother, basically was even asked to leave his own mosque because his anti-american views were so strong that the islamic community in cambridge was outraged. >> if they saw this happen, raise this question and raise h
